Thanks to Diana Waters for the photos and video.

Our annual Pancake Night was well supported again and we managed to successfully integrate teaching of learners and intermediate dancers, Mainstream dancing and the flip’n’catch that is the joy of pancakes. The Pancake King crew – Scott and Kaye – doing a marvellous job and Scott has perfected the art of flipping these babies. Pity we all haven’t necessarily mastered the art of catching them!!

In an effort to allow more frequent intakes for new dancers, we’re running three streams Monday nights now. Intermediate (6 – 7 then 8 – 8:30pm), New learners (7 – 8:30pm) and Mainstream (8 – 10:15pm). Some overlaps to allow good mixing.
Here’s a photo of one of the mixes. What a sharp looking group!

(Click on Thumbnails to enlarge, then click on picture again)

Sixteen good timing Outlaws dancers with Graham and Dawn journeyed 4hrs to the State’s south east to join Acey Squares at their 10th Birthday celebration. Their feature caller was Brian Hotchkies and the event was a Friday night, Sat afternoon & night and Sunday breakfast affair. We thoroughly enjoyed our club outing and the constant rain could do little to dampen our enthusiasm. Congratulations to Chris and Alan Hall on their club’s 10th and we look forward to seeing you again at a dance.
